Join us for the DOXA Documentary Film Festival, Western Canada’s largest documentary film festival, which will be streaming online May 6 - 16, 2021! Registration is now open for this special 20th Anniversary Festival.
Mia Donovan is the writer and host of Dope is Death, a four-part podcast series that explores a visionary project: the first acupuncture detoxification program in America. Donovan’s film of the same name is part of a special program at DOXA 2021 curated by the Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users (VANDU). Produced in Vancouver and hosted by Garth Mullins, Crackdown is a podcast about drugs, drug policy and the drug war led by drug user activists. The episodes cover a wide range of issues, from stories on policing and housing, to gender and blame from drug users’ perspectives. Please join us for this discussion about podcasting, harm reduction and documentary journalism. Moderated by Joseph Clark
This year will be a special celebration of the festival’s history, with three generations of program directors, which will highlight some of their favourite features from DOXA’s past. Committed to cultivating curiosity and critical thought, DOXA 2021 delivers some of the very best in contemporary documentary cinema over 11 days.
Select screenings will include pre-recorded filmmaker Q+As and extended discussions. Please see the film description for more information. Films are geo-blocked to Canada, which means you will need to be in Canada to watch the films. Once a film is unlocked, you have 48 hours to watch it.
